This is an update to the Delegation to visit the Energy Minister! of last week.
Numerous letters of request, dating back to early December 2011, have been sent to Minister O’Brien, asking him to meet with representatives from community groups around Victoria concerned with the smart meter rollout. To date no reply had been received.
For this reason, a community delegation decided to visit Mr O’Brien’s electoral office (after being informed that Fridays are his electoral office days) to hand deliver another letter requesting that he meet with community representatives as a matter of urgency. A petition and resolution from a recent community meeting were also left with his office staff.
Despite two witnesses allegedly sighting Mr O’Brien in his office about half an hour prior to the delegation arriving, Mr O’Brien was nowhere to be found at 11:00 am.
When his electoral staff were asked if they knew where he was, they replied they didn’t know of his whereabouts. Not even his staff could explain where he was?
